Blurb (from Goodreads):
Cheating, partying, blackmail, and now...murder?Can the Billings Girls remain untouchable?
Reed's boyfriend, Thomas Pearson -- the popular, easygoing, irresistibly handsome and charismatic boy she fell in love with -- is dead. No one knows how it happened, and everyone is after the truth. Or are they?
Life at Easton Academy begins to feel very different. Taylor is acting like the poster child for Prozac, Kiran is spiking her cornflakes, Noelle is being kind of...nice, and Arianna keeps floating along as if nothing has happened.
Thanksgiving break arrives and Reed and Josh find themselves alone on campus. They are forced to confront the feelings they've been hiding. Those feelings combined with an empty campus result in the hottest hookup Reed could possibly imagine. But when Reed breaks the news about Josh to the Billings Girls, there's no fun game of tell-all. Instead, Josh begins to look like suspect No. 1 in the murder of Thomas Pearson.
The perfect life Reed has constructed as a Billings Girl begins to crumble. And as everyone becomes more convinced of Josh's guilt, Reed's private suspicions lead her somewhere she doesn't want to go.
My rating: 3.25 of 5 stars
This was a YA contemporary story, with a bit of a murder-mystery going on.
Reed was an okay character in this, although I was surprised at how she stood up to Noelle. I did feel sorry for her though following Thomas’ death.
The storyline in this followed on from the previous book, with Reed understandably upset over her boyfriend’s death, and we had the question over how Thomas had ended up dead – was he murdered? And if so, by whom? This was an entertaining read though, and I liked the little twist we got thrown at the end.
